U.S. Stocks Rise After Russia Agrees to Talks With Ukraine


The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average rose after Russia agreed to talks with Ukrainian leadership, while Russian forces closed in on Kyiv and bombing intensified in Ukraine.

The two benchmarks opened higher after a Kremlin official said that Moscow was willing to send a delegation to Belarus to meet with the Ukrainian government, suggesting Russian President Vladimir Putin remained open to negations. Earlier Friday, the Ukrainian capital came under renewed bombing.
